Harbhajan Singh recounts personal horror story of his fisticuff with Sreesanth
Former Indian spinner, Harbhajan Singh who has played with both Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir had a strong message for both the cricketers. Narrating from his personal experience, he made it clear that things like these never end well for any of these two.
Recalling one of the most infamous chapters of Indian cricket, Harbhajan Singh and Sreesanth, two architects of India’s remarkable 2007 World Cup win went head on against each other with the former slapping the fast bowler in a cataclysmic release of exasperation. However, things went further downhill and there was no stopping the two.
Here is what Harbhajan Singh had to say about Virat and Gambhir
Harbhajan said that he regrets what he did to another fellow Indian cricketer and the ban that followed took a lengthy part of his career. Not only was he heartbroken but Sreesanth had a rut going for himself as well.
Issuing a warning to Kohli and Gambhir, Harbhajan said, “This won’t stop here. People will be talking about it, trying to dissect who did what. All this though, is talk on the outside. As a someone who has lived through something like this myself. It was something similar that happened between me and Sreesanth back in 2008. Today, 15 years later, I still feel ashamed thinking about it. At the time I felt what has happened as happened, I was right. But no, what I did was wrong.”
